A promising start

It's not J.A.R.V.I.S. yet, but the Google Home speaker does a good job of impressing for such a young ecosystem... Full review

Impressive and potentially game-changing

from Canadian Reviewer
Google Home is a demonstration of Google's awesome collection of knowledge sources, from the latest news, weather information, podcasts, music and various smart home and automation services, this is the first smart speaker that opens up a world of possibilities for Canadians. The best thing about Google Home is that today we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg of what this impressive and potentially game-changing voice-driven conduit to various cloud-based services and technologies...

Google Assistant leads the charge

from Mobile Syrup
Overall, I'm pleased with the Home and happy that Google has opted to finally bring the device to Canada. Home could easily replace my Echo and probably will given how it matches the functionality Amazon's IoT device is capable of, but also features Google Assistant... Full review

The smart speaker that answers almost any question

from The Guardian
Google Home is an excellent entry into the burgeoning smart speaker race that’s revving up between the big US technology companies. Amazon’s Echo and Alexa have a head start, but Google’s Assistant is highly capable in many ways, but strangely half-baked in others... Full review

For all its potential, still mostly an early adopter gadget

from Android Community
You probably already know whether or not you fall into the "early adopter" camp. If that's you, there's plenty of cool stuff to explore in Google Home beyond the core casting and streaming experience. If not, buy it because you want a good, stylish connected speaker that can occasionally tell you the distance between London and Edinburgh and remind you how many cups are in a quart... Full review

Help you be more efficient at competing those little tasks

from Coolsmartphone

Good for synchronizing music

from The Wirecutter
Though great for starting an inexpensive multiroom audio system and more able to interface with some Google products, the Google Home is still catching up with the Echo... Full review

A superb AI hub

from IT Pro
Google Home is pretty much neck and neck with it's biggest rival, the Amazon Echo. That doesn't mean it's not an excellent product, though - especially for those who have already bought into Google's ecosystem... Full review

More fleshed out than Amazon’s

from Expert Reviews
If you haven’t already splashed out on an Echo, Google Home is an essential purchase. Aside from a handful of teething problems it’s a remarkable little home helper, and one I can’t recommend highly enough. Amazon’s Echo just isn’t as all-encompassing as Home and, as such, no other personal assistant comes close... Full review

A more powerful version of Google Now

from Tech Advisor
We're excited by the potential of Google Home, but until it makes it to these shores the Amazon Echo will continue to build up its lead. Don't wait too long Google... Full review
